13 Complaints


We aim to provide a high quality service. If, however, you have any comments or concerns about our service, please
raise them with the person dealing with your matter or alternatively contact Steven Warne or, if Mr Warne has conduct of the file, Annabel Ford.


We will endeavour to deal with your concerns promptly and thoroughly which will be investigated in accordance with our Complaints Handling Policy, a copy of which will be provided on request.


Making a complaint will not affect how we handle your case.


What to do if we cannot resolve your complaint


The Legal Ombudsman can help you if we are unable to resolve your complaint ourselves. They will look at your complaint independently and it will not affect how we handle your case.


Before accepting a complaint for investigation, the Legal Ombudsman will check that you have tried to resolve your complaint with us first. If you have, then you must take your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman:

• Within six months of receiving a final response to your complaint


• No more than one year from the date of act/omission; or
• No more than one year from when you should reasonably have known there was cause for complaint.


If you would like more information about the Legal Ombudsman, please contact them.
